2012 Election | Barack Obama | Denver | Mitt Romney

Shot Fired At Obama Campaign Office In Denver: PHOTOS


A front glass window was shattered but no one was hurt when a single gunshot was fired at President Obama's reelection campaign office in Denver yesterday afternoon.

The shot came at about 3pm and though they have no leads on a person at the moment, Denver police say they're looking into a specific vehicle description that may lead them to the man or woman responsible.

Denver, as the AP notes, was the site of Obama and rival Mitt Romney's first presidential debate as well as where a gunman killed 12 people during a shooting at a movie theater in July.

More images AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. This is 2012, there is CCTV footage available? If not, why not?

  3. I would check the whereabouts of that "do your homework, buddy" lady interviewed at the VP debate.

  4. This is what happens when a major political party (the republicons) becomes unhinged from reality. When Obama is reelected in November, I fear it's going to drive some of those teavangelical, punk whiny-cons right off the deep end.

  8. During the first debate, Mitt Romney's theme was consistent and simple: States' Rights. He defined the election as a battle between States Rights and Big Federal Government. That plays well for him in the individual Swing States. And he means it. As a Mormon, Romney idolizes States' Rights. To gain an existential understanding of the cult that produced Mitt Romney, and to get your socks scared off, read The Assassination of Spiro Agnew, available in paperback and e-book at:

    Its unwilling, part-Mexican Mormon assassin dramatizes the Mormon superiority complex, manifesting it as racism, sexism, jingoism and an anti-federal government temperament. His research in the new library reveals ominous similarities between Islam and Mormonism. The spiritual power behind the cult, which is not the Holy Ghost, acts out.

    “With a clarity of language and vision unsurpassed in contemporary American prose, Steven Janiszewski's Assassination of Spiro Agnew takes us into a U.S. mazed with madness and Mormonism and all things Utah, a U.S. that was then and still is. Readers, welcome to a masterpiece.”
    Tom Whalen

    Read The Assassination of Spiro Agnew.

  9. I am completely stunned that this incident of domestic terrorism (and not just because it was a campaign headquarters but that does emphasize it) isn't ALL OVER THE NEWS MEDIA IN EVERY FORM IN ALL CAPS! This is clearly a case of "Well, if it kills or hurts someone that's for Obama, the better, but if it just smashes the glass, that works too." I first heard of this on the night it happened reported by Rachel Maddow on MSNBC at 9pm at the top of her show. My mouth dropped open at the news. People, what is it going to take for us to realize that this election is between the Democratic Party and the Fascist/Nazi Party (I am not speaking of moderate Republicans here) which the Republican Party has morphed into. Tea Party my arse! Read your history, these people are at the least fascists and at the worst the new Nazi party. Wake up and express your absolute indignation! The time is now! Our country is truly at stake. THIS is what the Mayan calendar ending means for us if we let it.

  10. Don't let this distract you - happens quite a bit in Colorado. Idiots like to break windows. Campaign office windows have been shot out or smashed in with rocks/bricks in Denver a number of times in the past and I recall a plate glass window of the downtown Denver office of the Republican party being smashed in a few years ago. The windows of gay businesses on Colfax have been fair target for vandals for years. The breaking of windows is nothing since it's just vandalism and the act by itself has little political impact. Concern should instead be with what goes on with actual politics, who's chummy with who, where politicos get their money from, actual political views instead of the publicly exposed ones. For instance, I've come to know of people aligned with the democratic party who are extremely chummy with some very right wing(and very scary) people because they regard those people as best friends, or have a strong business relationships with them or the right winger has a lot of money that people find very attractive. I suspect a number of people like to wear the liberal mask whereas their actual views much more closely match their wealthy right wing friends. Carrying the bi-partisan thing to an extreme obscene level. Breaking glass makes a lot of noise but the quiet deal making betrayals are a lot more dangerous.
